Carlos and I knew each other back in nursing school. He reached out to me asking if I could document his proposal with his girlfriend Cristy – of course I said yes to the idea. He told me his grand plan to take her on a private airplane tour from Waterloo International Airport to Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport.

He would then propose to her at the harbour front in Toronto, where their family would be there to witness and celebrate along side them. The idea was to make it seem like Carlos, the pilot and I were flying out because I wanted an aerial tour. The hope was to not make it seem obvious because of my camera gear…

Apparently Cristy had known all along for quite some time a few days leading up to the proposal day. Nonetheless their proposal day was filled with love. After all the intentions, actions and moments that were co-created that day with love and family were all that mattered.
